39. It will help if we realize it's not "the media," it's just corporate profit-propaganda

Nothing more.
Granted there is legit journalism going on, but every time I hear this kind of "I can't believe this" reaction, it's always about the profit-info-tainment business and their outlets/employees.

Isn't it time we all realized this? They don't have any incentive to report objective journalism. It's never gonna happen.

For example- as much as misguided lovers of Rachel Maddow wish she'd "blow the lid off this, oh boy she is gonna school us!" -No she won't. Nothing will come of that shit, they are just doodling around for ratings and $$$. That's it, end of.

When the average Joe Schmo on the internet can scrounge up enough evidence for impeachment and prison-time, ya gotta ask yourself... if the corporate info-tainment shitheads were really "journalists" would this Garbage Clown have even made it through the primaries, let alone into office? Fuck no, it would have been squashed into laughable oblivion ages ago. No question.

Try getting news from independent/other sources. Best to remember the "Media" in this case is just corporate propaganda, they helped install this administration and it's high time we all realized that. They aren't out to help or educate us, they are there to reinforce the shareholder's investments. Nothing more.

We might as well yell at a cat for killing the canary when we leave the room. Best to remember... Fluffy is still gonna kill Mr. Featherbutt, that's just the way it is. Pointless to pretend. Not the best analogy at all, I realize. Sorry LOL
